That’s Berkeley

That’s Berkeley

What happens here isn’t magic. It just feels that way. Because there is no telling
what will occur when people… unsatisfied with the way things are… have the courage to imagine a better way…
and the freedom to turn what could be… into what will.
That takes bold thinking, disruptive ideas,
and an amazing array of perspectives, people, and intellectual pursuits. But it’s hard to capture something that
won’t stand still. That’s Berkeley. Berkeley. Built by the people,
for the people. Founded and forever inspired
by those who had an unstoppable drive to build a new state on the western edge. We embraced the radical idea
of a public university… …and never looked back… Hundreds of thousands of lives changed for
people who then go out and change the lives of millions more… in our state, our nation, and the world. That’s Berkeley. Taking on today’s biggest challenges… A revolutionary treatment for Malaria? Check. Unlocking the secrets of the universe? Been
there. Preserving Mark Twain for prosperity? Done
that. We are always one step ahead.
And sometimes, that step is too big for words alone to describe. We express.
We interpret. We reach further.
We celebrate. And we are celebrated for our long
tradition of untraditional excellence. Driven by a deep desire… …to do better,
to do good. That’s Berkeley. Life shaping…
world changing… Future building. Berkeley Berkeley Berkeley
